Timeline

1851 Built Barlow and Jones

1873 march 12th On Saturday evening, the workpeople in the employ of the firm of Barlow and Jones met in the Temperance Hall, to celebrate the attainment of the majority of Mr John Robert Barlow, second son of James Barlow, Esq. About 1,500 partook of a substantial tea provided by Mr Barlow in honour of the occasion, and the arrangements for serving so large a number were admirably carried out by a committee of the employees. During the intervals between the second and third tables, a string band discoursed some excellent music. The occasion was taken advantage of by the employees to present Mr J.R. Barlow with a splendidly illuminated address, encased in a large gilt oval frame
Mr Jesse Fletcher proposed the best thanks of the meeting to Jas Barlow, Esq., for his hospitality. After referring to the good understanding there existed between employer and employed at Albert Mills, he said the firm had ever had the indomitable courage to adopt the latest improvements in machinery; and he (Mr Fletcher) stated, authoritatively, that there was not another place in Lancashire that was connected with the same branch of business where the hands employed got the same wages and enjoyed the same liberties as those at Albert Mills.
